Literally. Raf Simon’s Fall/Winter 2014-2015 haute couture collection for Dior is filled with silhouettes inspired by court fashion of yore (think voluminous skirts with side hoops).

It’s interesting to see how he interpreted 18th century style to fit with today’s context. Fresh and unique!

christian-dior-couture-fall-winter-2014-2015-raf-simons-sleeveless-dressMy favorite look is this one! This sleeveless dress with asymmetric hem does not have the pannier thingy going on, leaning more towards a 1950s silhouette. It’s so pretty!
